You’d have to be living under a rock (or doing a digital detox) to avoid the hype around Veganuary.
It's a yearly challenge that asks people to give up all animal-based products for 31 days, following the unbridled meat-fest of Christmas.

The meteoric rise of veganism isn’t exactly new news anymore. Between 2017 and 2018 participants in Veganuary (people pledging to go plant-based for the month of January) grew by 183%.
